Parents and Campers
Campers and families interested in attending Camp Kesem can find the camp closest to them on our Camps page. However, we respectfully ask that you only sign your camper up for one Camp Kesem session per summer.
Camp Kesem strives to provide each camper with a unique experience and a lifetime of memories. In order to fulfill this goal, both campers and camper families play an integral role. Campers and camp families can share our message with other families that currently are dealing with or have dealt with cancer. By spreading the word and message of Camp Kesem, we can continue to change lives and expand to college campuses across the nation. Additionally, the families of campers can encourage friends and relatives to support the organization by sponsoring a camper or making a donation.
We try to maintain a supportive Camp Kesem network throughout the year by holding reunions at your local Camp Kesem chapter. Campers and families: look out for invitations to these reunions in the fall after camp and in the spring before next year’s camp.
Camp Kesem has received the very generous support of Veritas Prep to offer a new service to our population: college test prep. When cancer strikes, the whole family is affected, and often times children whose parents have cancer do not have the same resources as they once had available. Together with Veritas Prep, we aim to address this challenge and are now pleased to offer FREE SAT prep courses to anyone in our CK family – our CITs, campers or camper alumni getting ready for the exam, family members or siblings of our student leaders or camper families. These courses are valued at over $900 each, so this is an amazing gift that we hope anyone who might benefit in our circle will take advantage of.
